Sketchiness continues: A canceled benefit, drug drop-offs to "Lola" ...
According to TMZ, hers was an "accidental death caused by 'community acquired pneumonia,' iron deficiency anemia, and multiple drug intoxication."
Multiple drug intoxication and not a broken heart, of either the literal or metaphorical kind — a sad "I told you so" if there ever was one.
But wait, it gets even weirder/sadder.
Simon Monjack's $1000/head Brittany Murphy Benefit, which was scheduled to take place tonight, was canceled at the last minute without a rhyme or reason as to why. Celebitchy takes a guess that it was a general disinterest in "shel[ling] out $1,000 to a man with Monjack’s reputation." However, perhaps Simon knew that this story was about to explode.
Queue the mysterious "Lola."
Sources tell TMZ a man who worked at Brittany Murphy's house has told the Coroner's Office that someone would deliver a sealed, manila envelope to the house every Friday filled with prescription medications in bottles. The name on the envelope— "Lola."
Sources say the ex-employee told the Coroner drugs were also mailed from Los Angeles to Louisiana — where Brittany was shooting a movie and Simon was tagging along — in the months before she died.
We're told the pathologist in the Coroner's Office who is working on the case had a variety of questions for Simon and Sharon. Among the questions — Why was there no record of Brittany seeing a doctor in the months before her death, especially because she had several medical conditions and was experiencing severe abdominal pains days before her death?

The question remains: Did Brittany Die Because Of Her Spouse's Habits?
